Q.Fig tree, pest problem
A pest has developed on the fig tree leaves and developing fruit this year. I havent noticed it on the tree previously – over 15 years. Im hoping you can tell me what it is and how I should treat it.
That is a BAD scale infection. These little insects can be difficult to treat but with some persistence, you can clear them up. Neem oil is a good initial treatment when sprayed on. This link will take you to more articles to make your own pest control if this treatment alone fails to work: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/
